that will rise for most workers. we're talking about the 2% payroll tax cut that was part of an obama stimulus that was passed two years ago and then extended for another year. in this deal, they're going to let that payroll tax cut expire and that will mean that an additional $20 a week out of most workers paychecks will now go back to the social security trust fund instead of into their pockets. juror all right. thank you -- >> all right. thank you for that report. >>> one major issue is the bill does not address is the debt ceiling. monday, the u.s. reached its legal borrowing limit and now the treasury department must work to buy time until the end of next month. the department will suspend some investments and benefit funds for federal workers. still, department will not be able to pay all of the nation's bills on time. this could set stage for another capitol hill battle as congress must vote to raise the debt ceiling. >> new this morning, gay marriage ceremonies are under way in maryland. same-sex couples have been able to get marriage licenses in the free state for about three weeks bu

is whether it can pass here, the republican-controlled house of representatives. early on monday, president obama surrounded himself with middle- class families to make the point that it would be average americans who would be hardest hit by a failure to compromise. >> the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades. that would add additional hundreds of billions of dollars to deficit reduction. so that is progress. but we will need to do more. >> but no one is claiming the bill is perfect. the sticking point is what to do about cuts in major government departments. the problem has been put off for now. on the taxation side, the president got nearly everything he wanted with republicans agreeing to raise taxes on the wealthiest and extend unemployment benefits. the major public holiday of new year's day means global stock markets are shocked on tuesday and that give these them -- and that gives them more time. the u.s. politicians were so voted down ideologically that they

more than $450,000 per year will see their taxes go up. that's far higher than obama's original proposal. they have yet to agree to suspend spending cuts. the democrat led senate is expected to pass the bill on new year's eve. the republican led house says it will not vote on the bill before the midnight deadline. members of congress are expected to work on a stop gap measure to prevent any serious fiscal impact. the fiscal cliff has become a term many people even outside the financial markets are talking about. if the u.s. economy falls off this cliff, ripple effects are expected. >> reporter: the term fiscal cliff has been making headlines recently. here's a brief explanation. it's a term used to refer to the economic fallout that might occur because of policy divisions in the u.s. congress. if democrats and republicans cannot come to an agreement on resolving the fiscal cliff by year end, sudden tax increases and drastic budget cuts will take effect and would dramatically slow the u.s. economy. let's look into the two main components of the fiscal cliff. first, taxes. democra

this could be a loss for president obama because included in this deal that has passed the senate there is nothing about the debt limit, which did he want. >> most important element, i think, that, if it passes the house that will attract republicans, is the fact that this deal does not do anything about the debt limit. remember, obama really wanted to include a debt ceiling increase, at least for a year. that's not in there. so that's a big loss for the president, but nobody is really talking about. >> juliet: so mcconnell says we have to get serious about spending. but one of the other things is this sequestration issue was a big issue. so there will be a couple more months for folks to figure out, for lawmakers to figure out what to do with that. >> steve: and kick that down the road. that can down the road. and technically, i believe we ran out of money at midnight, but they're rejiggering things at the treasury department so the debt ceiling, looks like they'll have that fight at the end of february or march. those are two things that the republicans may say, i'm coming up sh
of president obama, there was no budget passed. nobody is talking, the liberal media is not talking. they are hiding the bills that were passed in the house to be tabled and never brought up and never be accountable for. i hold the republicans accountable, too, because they did not step up to the mike and point the finger towards the blame. i have another question to ask. obama asked for complete congressional powers about being able to pull up and give any amount of money that he wanted, taking those powers away from the house. i think that is completely ludicrous. as far as the last caller asking out the democrats and republicans, that me see, if the democrats put a bill together and the republicans don't vote for it, they are mad at it, but if the republicans put a bill and let's say cave to the democrats, there is no bipartisan. i have never seen the democrats actually cave and take care of the fiscal cliff in the amount of debt that we have is completely crazy to me. >> that is marked in north carolina. back to the tweets. peak in louisiana on the democrats' line. you are on c-
lawmakers return to work at noon eastern time. president obama is encouraging them to, quote, pass it without delay, but this is not a done deal, not by any stretch of the imagination. the senate bill would raise taxes for individuals making more than $400,000 a year, $450,000 for couples. those are levels that are higher than what president obama had called for during the presidential campaign and during the heated negotiations. senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goler is live with the latest. does the white house have a sense of what might happen in the house? >> reporter: vice president biden wouldn't predict how the house would vote, in fact, the president and his aides are waiting to see if the house even picks up the vote today. the senate deal, basically, buys the nation a two month extension of the so-called fiscal cliff, but it doesn't contain any spending cuts, and that's a going to make it a tough sell to house republicans. yesterday the president aimed to put some pressure on them in an appearance that showcased middle class americans who'd be hit
compromise. >> if the senate bill passes the house as it is delays sequestration cuts for two months. it will extend tax cause making less than $250,000. and it will extend unemployment benefits for two million people they expire today. president obama announced that no one got everything they wanted and wants the house to pass it. >> we find ourself with a bill that does not reflect financial wisdom but the spirit that per veighs this town. the time to confront this is not now but later, we'll do the right thing then. >> some republicans are suggesting amending the bill that the senate passed and adding spending cuts in that bill. this will have to happen by noon thursday when this congress ends and the new one is sworn in or the whole thing starts over again. the sequestration cuts take effect as the tax cuts -- in fact, they have already taken effect. >> thank you. so what do americans think of the job that congress is doing to solve this fiscal crisis? agoal goal went out to find out. >> they don't think much of what is going on in the buildin
